A Resource Guide to Assist the Navy in Development of Alternative Strategies to Meet Its Basic Skills Needs.
Smith, Shirley C.
As part of the United States Navy's efforts to enlarge its pool of personnel who are qualified for service and who will seek long-term careers in the Navy, the research branch of the Chief of Naval Education and Training contracted Research for Better Schools (RBS), Inc., to examine two areas related to personnel development: basic skills instruction and career development. Specifically RBS examined the Navy's current basic skills remediation programs and needs, the existing Navy training continuum (with particular reference to career opportunities), and current Navy programs and development efforts in basic skills and career development. These were examined in light of instructional approaches and systems used in adult basic education programs around the country. The major product of this effort is a reference document that presents, in an easy-to-use format, information on relevant programs, materials, and instructional strategies from both the military and the civilian sectors, as well as a list of individuals, organizations, and periodicals specializing in areas relevant to future Navy basic skills development.
